Ferrari honours Simoncelli at Sepang

Ferrari pays tribute to Marco Simoncelli at Sepang
Ferrari has paid tribute to Marco Simoncelli on arrival at the Sepang circuit for this weekend's Malaysian Grand Prix.

Simoncelli lost his life in an accident during the Malaysian MotoGP race last year, when the Italian fell and was then struck by two bikes following behind.

Ahead of this weekend's F1 event, Ferrari drivers Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa visited turn eleven with members of the their team to remember Simoncelli and unveiled a banner in his memory reading 'Sic, Always with us'.

“From now on, coming here will never be the same again as it will always make one think of Marco,” Alonso said. “I think the Ferrari family and all Italians who love sport and motorcycling will remember him always. His death was something one could never have expected. We will remember him always and he will always be a hero to us.”

“We wanted to go to Turn 11 to pay a tribute to Marco's memory,” Massa added. “I think it was the least we could do for him, for his family and for all his fans. I think that all weekend long, we will drive here with thoughts of Marco.”

This is a nice tribute by Ferrari to a guy that was popular with everyone and so exciting on the track with a huge personality and character. This shows that Motorsport and sport is just one big family. It's be difficult for everyone who was there and who saw it live not to forget what happened to Simoncelli when the cars come around to that corner for the first time in practice. Super Sic still live on in our hearts, he may no be here but he'll never be forgotten!!! #58
